I'm Back with a New Pattern!

Spring flowers have brought me out of my very long hibernation and I have found inspiration once again as the sunlight streams through my attic window!

My resolution is to be more productive this year and release more patterns in my shop so I have hired another illustrator. {You will see more of the cute little bunny helper in the next post.}

Sarah, my new illustrator, is fabulous and has had lots of patience while we worked out the tedious little details in the first pattern of the year. I know things will only get faster and better with every month to come.

My friend Jana who I have known since we were little comes to my studio once a week to help with brainstorming, organizing & bookkeeping. She keeps me motivated because it is hard for me stay focused and maintain deadlines while working alone every day.

By popular demand, the Leaf Potholder pattern is now available in my SHOP. They are a great way to use up your endless baskets of scraps! Make a set with all three sizes, a set of two large leaves, or sets of coasters. String the loops together for easy hanging! These make easy quick gifts that your friends and family will love.

Even though I have been away from blogland for a long time, I have still been designing and quilting which means there is a lot for me to share with you. Stay tuned...

Enjoy your afternoon tea & quilted crafts :o)

  2. I am very happy to see you back!
    These leave potholders are really cool! I can't wait to see the rest.

  3. Oh boy - happy to see you have created a pattern for these lovely leaves - I've been wanting to make some ever since you first posted the red, black and white ones you made as a gift!! I'm on my way now to get my patterns!!

  4. So glad to see your back and with more patterns and inspiration. I have to ask about the cloth in the last picture that looks like it has applique and embroidery...it is beautiful. Did you make that also?

  8. Oh Laurraine! Just popped by your blog and had to stay awhile to admire your beautiful creations!
    Oh my! How darling are these leaf pothlders...I just love them!
    I love patchwork and any bit of sewing, except mending that is, and I delight in creating lovely things from pretty fabrics!
    Thank you for sharing such lovely inspiration!
